To commemorate the upcoming release of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World on Blu-ray (November 9th, buy it!), let us bask in the glory of one of the most talented young directors in the game, Edgar Wright. Sure he has yet to be a bankable name synonymous to the likes of Christopher Nolan but his notably distinctive style of filmmaking has set him apart from the rest, leading to bigger, Hollywood-centric productions and long-lasting relationships with those who originally influenced him (Tarantino, Peter Jackson, Raimi, Romero, Del Toro, Spielberg). He actually lived in Tarantino's guesthouse for over a year during the writing of Inglorious Basterds and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. Another interesting tidbit, Peter Jackson played a cameo role in Hot Fuzz. So GAF, let's make like nerds and rank Edgar Wright's works from GREATEST OF ALL TIME to LEAST GREATEST OF ALL TIME.
